Rob Sawan knows struggle and the street intimately. Now heâ€™s devoted his life to telling the stories from there to heal First Nations communities. The Penticton-based Cree rapper who records under the moniker K.A.S.P. worked his way up from a rough East Van youth rife with alcohol and drug abuse to become a motivational speaker.
